Motherhood combined with the daily stresses of life can have various effects on one’s body. A mommy makeover refers to a surgical procedure that aims to reverse some or all of these changes, making a woman look more youthful. In more successful cases, the surgeries are so successful that clients end up having the body form they had in their late teens and early twenties.
The term “mommy makeover” does not refer to any specific set of surgeries. The number of surgeries depends on the needs of the clients. The most popular include breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, genitoplasty, scar revision from a c-section and a flank liposuction.
Benefits of a Mommy Makeover
The uptake rate of mommy makeovers has been rising. The noted benefits of the procedure include:
- Reverses the changes associated with childbirth
- Improves confidence and self esteem
- Restores body shape and proportion
About The Procedures
Every mommy makeover is tailored to the needs of the client. If you need to get it done, the first step would be to identify what you need changed. The surgeon will provide a professional opinion on what is possible and what is not.
Depending on your needs, the number of surgeries to be done will be decided. Whether they are done all at once or spread out depends on the clinical risk involved. If major reconstruction is involved, it is recommended that all the surgeries be spread out to avoid subjecting the body to too much trauma and strain. Ultimately, the surgeon will be the one to assess and communicate the risk of doing all the surgeries at once, and you can then decide on how to schedule them.
The complications associated with a mommy makeover are minor, and can usually be managed. The most common of these is postsurgical pain, which occurs during the first few days after the surgery. It’s controlled using various strengths of painkillers. Pain during the first few days is usually managed using narcotic painkillers.
